How to add a Broswer page like google or firefox

I purchased the FOX NATION app for my father. However, because we cut the cable, there is not a provider to sign in to activate this channel. I can use this via a web browser. Tired several times to install a web browser and nothing worked. I read there is a Browser X to be used, but can't find it either. Help if anyone can, please.

If you already have a Fox Nation subscription, you have to add the Fox Nation channel app to his Roku. Once installed, go into the app and choose "Sign in with Your Email". Then follow the prompts to sign in with the email address and password used for your Fox Nation account.

He is signed in with the email verification. It is not going to play live TV unless he has either a cable or Satelite account. I can override this is I had access to a web browser. How do I get to a web browser?

Web browsers are not allowed on the platform.  There have been attempts in the past, but none of them ever really worked and they are specifically prohibited.

Fox decides the conditions under which it makes its content available to whom. In the past they have made their live content available through streaming devices without an additional paid provider that shares its subscription fee with the channels it carries. From several posts on here lately, it sounds like Fox is no longer providing live feeds to those without a provider subscription. Roku has nothing to do with this -- if you want to pursue it you need to take this up with Fox.
